You probably heard about the 4 lads who decided to brave the pounding sea on Friday night.

I wasn’t there, but the weather was hostile and a spontaneous “dare” turned into a tragic accident.

First one, then another young man were swept out to sea whilst two escaped.

Witnesses say the first and second lad caught up with each other, before both swept away.

Our Rottingdean walk extended into Saltdean where coastguards had just discovered a body.

The guy in red was oblivious to the waves crashing over him as he scoured the sea.

He pointed quite clearly to where he thought the latter body could be found.

I feel for the grieving families, and this week we’ve also been saddened by the sudden death of a good neighbour.

Virtually everyone in France has been shaken this week, and I particularly feel for the Jewish community.

In western world there’s never a good time to die.

Unless you’re ready, and you’re work has been done.

And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, so also Christ died once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.

Hebrews 9: 27-28

  1. sad about the four lads. 😦

  2. … the two lads. Just looked at a link.

  3. Sobering. We are just watching the recently released Nicolas Cage movie ‘Left Behind’ – regardless of what we think of rapture theology the movie is also a sobering reminder of what it means to live and die without knowing God.
